Research into Tax Pays Dividends for Master of Laws Graduate
Tax is an important source of revenue and with it economic development for every country, hence Master of Laws cum laude graduate, Mr Daniel Robb’s research which analyses the differences of the taxation of dividends tax in South Africa and Mauritius’, contributes valuable knowledge to this field.
‘The reason I chose this topic, and stayed passionate about it, was that Mauritius is commonly used as an entry into Africa for companies and enjoys lower tax rates for high net worth individuals. My topic is therefore of use to anyone wanting to structure their affairs in such a way so as to use an offshore company in Mauritius,’ explained Robb.
As a qualified attorney who is involved in business, Robb has a great interest in tax practices and advancing his knowledge in this area.
‘I always wanted to be a tax attorney. Solving business’ issues and helping structure companies in such a way that they are most tax efficient is something I am very interested in. I love tax, it is a technical and dynamic piece of law and is something that also allows creativity within the confines of the Act and case law,’ said Robb.
‘The experience was an interesting one in the sense that you are studying exactly what you want to specialise in and is in an area of law which you are passionate about. In reality the qualification is a good base to start practising in tax, however as with all things in life, experience is required in order to make the degree,' he added.
